AMSTERDAM, April 5 (Reuters) - Authorities in Britain and the Netherlands seized assets worth more than 6 million euros ($6.40 million) and arrested a 46-year-old British woman after a joint investigation into alleged tax fraud and money laundering, Dutch prosecutors said on Wednesday.
The woman and her 51-year-old Dutch husband were suspected of using their Manchester-based marketing company to commit tax fraud via concealed offshore bank accounts in the Netherlands, Germany and Austria, the prosecutors said in a statement.
Prosecutors said the operation was designed to show their willingness to work cross-border to crack down on the practice of storing assets, untaxed, in offshore locations. ($1 = 0.9382 euros) (Reporting By Thomas Escritt, editing by Larry King)
